Synopsis

Feminism isn't dead. It just isn't very cool anymore. Enter Full Frontal Feminism, a book that embodies the forward-looking messages that author Jessica Valenti propagates on her popular website, Feministing. com. Covering a range of topics, including pop culture, health, reproductive rights, violence, education, relationships, and more, Valenti provides young women a primer on why feminism matters. Valenti knows better than anyone that young women need a smart-ass book that deals with real-life issues in a style they can relate to. No rehashing the same old issues. No belaboring where today's young women have gone wrong. Feminism should be something young women feel comfortable with, something they can own. Full Frontal Feminism is sending out the message to readers yeah, you're feminists, and that's actually pretty frigging cool. "

Ein tolles Buch über den modernen Feminismus und warum er immer noch relevant ist. Sehr schön und anschaulich geschrieben. Sehr empfehlenswert für jeden, der sich für die Thematik interessiert.

1 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Orly am 16. März 2013
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Viele Frauen vertreten heutzutage feministische Thesen; Studien belegen, dass die meisten Frauen von der Gleichstellung, dem Grundsatz des gleichen Lohns für die gleiche Arbeit oder des Rechts darauf, über eine Abtreibung (zumindest in gewissen gesetzlichen Grenzen) selbst entscheiden zu können, überzeugt sind. Warum bekennen sich dennoch nur so wenige Frauen zum Feminismus, der alle diese Forderungen vertritt?

Jessica Valenti beantwortet diese Frage. In einem kurzweiligen, leicht lesbaren Text deckt sie auf, wie der Feminismus in den Medien diskreditiert wird und Feministinnen stets als hässliche, männerhassende und fanatische Frauen dargestellt werden, denen jeder Spaß am Leben und jeder Humor fehlt.

Valenti beschränkt sich jedoch nicht auf diese Analyse; sie stellt dar, wie der Feminismus "das Leben besser macht". Sie geht zum Beispiel darauf ein, wie typische "Frauenprobleme" wie zum Beispiel Schönheitsideale systematisch das Selbstbewusstsein, die finanzielle Situation und die Gesundheit von Frauen beeinträchtigen (Stichwort Essstörungen) und wie die sexuelle Doppelmoral das Leben beeinflusst; und dann erklärt sie, warum der Feminismus zumindest auf einige dieser Fragen eine Antwort hat, die es uns leichter macht, damit klarzukommen. Aber auch den "ernsten" Themen wie zum Beispiel der Frauengesundheit oder der sexuellen Gewalt gegen Frauen widmet sich das Buch.

Am Ende des Buches findet sich ein ausführliches Quellenverzeichnis mit Artikeln, Internetadressen und Büchern zum Weiterlesen.

Was mir an diesem Buch besonders gefällt, ist seine Aktualität.

Wow, what a disappointment. 15. Juli 2009
Von lynna2000 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
So... I kinda hate this book. I am young, feminist, type and thought I'd give this book a shot for an easy read but I cannot finish it. The jist of it is the author stating a perceived slight to women and then saying, "wow, that is really sucky right? stupid anti-sex white men telling us what to do." There is no analysis, no measured reasoning. She also has a propensity for using the lazy technique of only stating the most extreme opposing viewpoint.

I actually agree with most of the tenets of this book but the way that the author presents them infuriated me. The book is supposed to be a primer for young women who would like to learn more about feminism but as a young woman, I was offended that Valenti didn't seem to think I was bright enough to read rationale behind the ideas and would blindly follow her. Big thumbs down.

Feminist Review blog on FFF 27. April 2007
Von Elevate Difference - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Jessica Valenti is a part of the feminist blogger elite, and for good reason. The blog that she was part of establishing, Feministing.com, gets a lot of traffic and is well-known among internet savvy, young, hip feminists. Full disclosure: I read Feministing on a somewhat regular basis. Having read Valenti's writing on the blog - which tends to be oversimplified and, quite frankly, bratty - I was hoping her analysis in book form would show at least a tad more depth. Unfortunately for Valenti, there's a downside to fame; it opens you up for public criticism.

If Full Frontal Feminism is supposed to be the spark that ignites young women to identify as feminists and hop on the movement train, then women are in deep trouble. Valenti writes like a feminist version of Ann Coulter, and let's face it, Ann Coulter is hardly known for her intelligence. Flamboyant and egotistical, much of Valenti's commentary is trite, at best. She makes sweeping generalizations ("When you're a feminist, day to day life is better. You make better decisions. You have better sex."), repeatedly calls her opponents juvenile names [...], confuses "truth" with "opinion," and has apparently done very little actual research to prove her claims, as there is little to no citation of her assertions. At times, she doesn't feel the need to make an assertion at all, responding to the opposition with a facile yet grandiose "Puke," a deliberately ironic "Yeah" or a pithy and useless "Terrifying", as though she has made her case. And despite hackneyed attempts every now and again to mention other marginalized groups, the truth is that this book overwhelmingly reflects the viewpoint of its white, middle class, (primarily, if not entirely) heterosexual, entitled, American, liberal feminist writer.

Valenti doesn't give her readers credit that they can do the thing she most wants them to do: think, analyze, and be critical. This is apparent in the fallacious style by which she presents her perspectives. My personal favorite - taken straight from the right wing, talk radio instruction manual - is when Valenti uses the "straw man," a common misleading bait-and-switch tactic, to "prove" her point (e.g., contending that anti-abortion advocates simply hate sex). A close second is when she uses the most extreme cases as though they weren't the exception to the rule (e.g., making the case for all women to have access to Emergency Contraception because rape victims should have access to it).

Perhaps Valenti believes that young women won't be moved unless they're completely scared to death. Fear is a powerful motivator, but it belittles the audience in the process. Oh, and did I mention that she uses the book as a forum to talk public trash about petty tiffs she's had with other bloggers? If fear doesn't sell you on feminism, apparently Valenti believes taking her side in some inane, personal dispute will.

Full Frontal Feminism is written in sound bytes, each chapter being comprised of smaller (usually) page-long explanations of a given issue: sex education vs. abstinence only, virginity pledges, expensive weddings, unattainable beauty standards, and other typical feminist fare. Apparently, the television has taken its toll (or so Valenti thinks) on the public because there is no sense of organization or logic to the structure of the book. And solutions? Those must have been left for someone else to tackle because you won't find them here, at least not outside of the standard volunteer, give money, and vote.

Now I know I've pretty much run this book into the ground, but I do want to say that I get what Valenti is trying to do here. And it's a really smart idea. She wants to reach out to young women who don't yet identify as feminists and let them know that it's okay, cool even, to be down with the F-word. She wants to tell them that they already believe in feminist ideals and have benefited from the women's movement. She wants to encourage them to continue in that tradition and kick some misogynist ass. That's a really honorable goal that, unfortunately, was a victim of poor execution.

If you're truly looking to find out why feminism matters, you'd be better served to flip to the booklist in the back of Full Frontal Feminism and read some of the titles listed there - including Colonize This!, Listen Up: Voices from the Next Generation, To Be Real, and The Fire This Time - because cool packaging is really great, but if there's nothing of substance inside then what you are selling is just the packaging.

An Example of How Not To Get People To Agree With You 2. Januar 2010
Von S. Kundo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While Valenti does provide good information in this book. I feel at times she does cross the border into being discriminatory towards certain people. For example, she refers to the Quiverfull religious movement as "wacky." I am a young feminist. However, I do not feel that calling a religion "wacky" is going to earn you any points. That's offensive. Whether you agree with it or not, that is their religion and people do have a choice to have one, which one to have, or to not be religious at all. I truly feel that if you want people to be more open-minded, then, you have to be open-minded as well. I also agree with another reviewer who said that she confuses truth with opinion more than once in this book. She does have a tendency to be rather immature regarding people who disagree with her.

I also agree with the reviewer when they said, "Valenti doesn't give her readers credit that they can do the thing she most wants them to do: think, analyze, and be critical. This is apparent in the fallacious style by which she presents her perspectives. My personal favorite - taken straight from the right wing, talk radio instruction manual - is when Valenti uses the "straw man," a common misleading bait-and-switch tactic, to "prove" her point (e.g., contending that anti-abortion advocates simply hate sex)." I couldn't have said that better. That is exactly how I feel. Now, I am pro-choice. I do not entirely agree with abortion, but I do believe that every woman should be able to make that choice for themselves. Do I hate sex? Hell no. Do my opinions on abortion make me against same-sex marriages (which she also implies you will be against if you don't agree with abortion)? Again, a resounding, hell no.

She makes a lot of unfair generalizations towards people she doesn't agree with, and I'm not okay with that. She is of the opinion that women don't actually want to stay at home and take care of their children, but instead a stay-at-home mom has just been filled with all of these ideas that men are more superior and should be the breadwinners. Sorry Stay-at-home Moms! She fails to realize that some women do actually want to be at home with their children, and not because their significant others or society makes them feel this way. And there ARE stay-at-home dads, as well, even though she fails to mention that and says something along the lines of, "If staying at home with the kids is so great, why aren't men doing it?" Again, just because it's something she doesn't agree with, it's crazy.

I'm not going to say don't read this book. I think that you should read it and form your own opinion on it, but I will say that it made me angrier as I read it. She does make a few valid points ... in an immature, filled-with-generalizations way.

Valenti's tough, but not always fair. 24. Juli 2011
Von Maggie.Marie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have read this book several times, and I do think it is a good book. I am just the target audience Valenti seems to have in mind: young (I'm 25), female, white, single, liberal, and, yes, I do consider myself to be a feminist. This book, therefore, is perfect for a gal like me. I thought that it was relevant, thought-provoking, and actually quite entertaining to read. However, like other authors promoting political ideologies, Valenti's book fell short of perfect in more sense than one.

I'll start with the "strengths" of the book. Using wit, humor, and some nicely handled research, Valenti presents to the reader an array of reasons young women should care about feminism, discussing everything from sexuality, to sexism in the workplace and political arena, to reproductive rights, to body image, and she even dedicates a chapter to male feminism (a topic that has been shunned or minimized by other feminists). She also educates readers who might not be well-versed in feminist history about the three "waves" of feminism and the concept of "intersectionality" (thus putting her master's degree in women's and gender studies to good use). At the conclusions of each chapter (as well as at the conclusion of each book), she also suggests things that the reader could do to take action against certain issues that were raised in that chapter (e.g., boycott Abercrombie and Fitch for their sexist products and policies).

But. This book is definitely not without its flaws. Valenti may have done her homework, but there are things that she definitely could have done without. For one thing, she curses throughout the entire book-- so much that she even points out that she has a "potty-mouth" more than once. And she's not kidding about that; there hardly seems to be any page that isn't peppered in some way with her cursing like a sailor. Personally, I am not offended by curse words. However, my concern is there are some people who might look at this book, see the amount of times Valenti drops the F-bomb, and the constant swearing could cause them to stop taking her seriously. And honestly, I can't blame them. Let's be honest... is it REALLY necessary to curse quite this much?

Also, while she seems to show great balance in her opinion in some places (e.g., when she admits that she does wear makeup and heels, but that she is aware of the harmful beauty standards promoted by society), in others she comes off as an extremist. I was quite offended when I read her chapter about relationships and marriage. While I understand that some marriage traditions do have a shady history (e.g., women as "property" to her husband), I think that she was very unfairly biased in some of her assertions against certain practices. According to Valenti, it is unfeminist and sexist to wear an engagement ring (I believe the word was "dowry") and to change your last name to your husband's (never mind that for some women, they choose to "take his name" because they *gasp!* CHOOSE to do that). When I first read this book, I was engaged at the time. I wore a pearl ring that I loved dearly AND helped pick out, and I wanted to take his last name because I have no ties to my father's family anymore. But apparently, according to Valenti, this means that I'm giving in to sexism, even though my reasons for participating were (a) my own choice and (b) for reasons that had nothing to do with feminism. I think that maybe Valenti should actually know all of the facts before she decides to lump all of the women who do these things into the same category.

As someone who also has a degree in women's studies, and has read probably about as much academic feminist theories as Valenti has, this book was a refreshing summary of feminism and how it can be applied today. Flaws aside, I do think that this book at least deserves consideration. If you totally hate it, then at least give it to someone else who might appreciate it.

Good book for emerging feminists 8. Mai 2007
Von Amanda Marcotte - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Casually written book that does a great job of reaching out to young women who may not think of themselves as feminists. The casual tone can be a tad deceptive, because the book is absolutely stuffed full of information about the current state of feminism, the current state of sexism, and why feminism is still relevant and why any young woman with a reasonable amount of self-respect should embrace it. Jessica makes the case for being a feminist not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it's personally important, and she draws on a number of personal anecdotes to show how often a little feminist theory can help you navigate many a personal situation where you might otherwise find yourself making decisions you won't like. The book drives home how feminism isn't some airy academic pursuit, but a social justice movement that goes right to the root of things in your daily life.

I see the book getting slipped into a lot of high school graduation gift baskets, since it's perfect for that. With all the anxiety about young women and early independence in college ramping up--especially the fear of the dangers of sexual experimentation and the feminist fears that the pressure to live for boys will overwhelm girls' internal need to live for themselves--this book really comes at a good time. Jessica addresses these issue for what they are, and doesn't engage in moralistic finger-wagging, far from it. She gives good, self-affirming advice to young women about the importance of feminism to help stiffen your backbone to face the onslaught of pressure on you to live a self-denying existence.
